Wait, does the ASUS card fit perfectly? I always thought that the card had to be less than 6.7". It would make everything so much easier if the limit isn't 6.7".

My pico PSU arrived so I did my best assembling it. Sadly I forgot the latch inside the shell and it hits the graphics card and bends it severly. I'll have to figure out a better way to mount it...
